He was famous for his Parpirar albums (in four volumes), including his local singing, and was widely received by the lovers of arts and culture of Mazandaran.
He was also famous for playing lále va (a wind musical instrument originally from Iran’s northern provinces which is translated into ‘shepherd’s straw’).
He was also the director of arts and cultural center of Parpirar which was established by the artist himself.
Jalali-Kandelousi, who entered the University of Tehran in 1987 to study social science, was one of the first people whose university thesis was dedicated to the study of Mazandaran indigenous culture.
Several Iranian officials including Iran’s Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Abbas Salehi, Deputy Culture Minister for Art Affairs Mojtaba Hosseini, and Iran's Music Office director Mohammad Allahyari condoled the death of the artist.
Salehi wrote, “The extensive services and deep concern of Jalali-Kandelousi in the field of indigenous and ritual arts and culture of Mazandaran will not be forgotten by art lovers.”
“Jalali-Kandelousi made great attempts for the indigenous arts, culture, and music of Mazandaran. He linked his knowledge in social sciences with studies in the field of culture, music, and traditions of Mazandaran and helped introduce the music and culture of the area.” Hossieni wrote in his message.
Allahyari wrote, “Jalali-Kandelousi was among the valuable cultural heritage of the northern part of the country, and he introduced the subtleties of folk music with his hands and voice. He also made great efforts in managing cultural activities.”
